Desk Upcycle

Creative Art and Design has moved.

Just a quick before and after. This desk belongs to a friend. It was in her room when she was little. Now she has a 5-year-old son. She wanted it repainted in a cowboy, western, Texas theme. I was free to do my thing.

Here it is. Oh, disregard the messy garage. When I create, things fly.

My husband’s office in Bridge City was a Texas theme so we had the stars and blocks and the horse hanger. A neighbor gave me the box and boots.
